Sheet pan beef nachos are a quick and easy dinner or snack. Perfect to feed a crowd or movie night in with the family.
Take these to any level you like. I made a separate pan vegetarian for my daughter, just as easy. Pick and choose what you like on your nachos and customize to your taste.
Who doesn’t love the easy one pan cook and clean up? Ok, so you use another pan to saute the ground beef. But that clean up happens while the nachos are in the oven, so no biggie.
Sheet Pan Beef Nachos
How to Make Nachos in the Oven
Preheat oven to 400º degrees F.
Cover a baking sheet with heavy-duty foil, spray lightly with cooking spray.
Mix together in a small bowl the chili powder, paprika, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, sea salt, and cayenne pepper.
Brown the ground beef, add the taco seasoning and cook for another minute or two.
Spread a single layer of tortilla chips on the sheet pan. Spread the ground beef and then the black beans evenly over the chips.
If you don’t like black beans as much as we do, try pinto beans or refried beans. Nachos are completely customizable.
Sprinkle the shredded cheese evenly over the beans.
Bake until heated through and the cheese is melted.
We used fresh diced tomatoes, fresh sliced jalapenos, diced green onions, and cilantro. Serve with sour cream drizzled over the top or on the side.
I slice up a lime for those of us that enjoy a fresh squeeze on our nachos.
A less than 30 minute meal or appetizer. Nachos don’t get any easier.
